Property description

If you are looking for a property set in the heart of a popular village, which will make that perfect second home or retirement destination, then look no further.

Picture yourself fresh from a brisk walk across the South Downs as you sit, snug in the impressive lounge. Just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this idyllic location. In the summer months, fling open the doors and let the outside in or partake in a spot of alfresco dining in the private rear garden. Why not share this retreat with friends or family, as the second bedroom would make an ideal space to accommodate guests, perhaps after an evening out at Glyndebourne to see the Opera, which is only a twenty minute drive away.

So if it's time to take life that little bit easier but you require a base close to the South Coast or enjoy walking on the Downs, Kingston could be right up your street. The village offers a traditional public house and a farm shop on the outskirts at Spring Barn. The county town of Lewes is just under three miles away and boasts a wealth of history as well as providing a wider variety of schooling, High Street shops, independent retailers, cafes and restaurants. Lewes mainline train station offers direct links to London, Brighton or services East along the coast.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.

What the Owner says:
When my mother was originally looking for a location to retire to, it was important for her to find a quiet location yet close to the heart of a vibrant and welcoming community - Kingston had ticked all of those boxes.

She created a really good lifestyle for herself here, making many friends. So we are confident the new buyer(s) will enjoy refurbishing the property to make it their own and benefit from this special location.
